A retirement breakfast was held recently for Doctors Debbie Green and Fred Williams during which they were recognized and honored by their peers for their years of service to our hospital and community.
(Note: Dr. Green is retiring from the hospital Medical Staff, but is not retiring from her practice in Ft. Lupton) Dr. Green has been on staff for 32 years providing excellent care for her patients not only in our new hospital, but in the old hospital on Egbert Street as well as the original hospital known as Brighton Community Hospital. She has worked in our hospital ED, supporting patients with a broad range of health issues, delivered more than her share of babies, most of whom are now grown and have started their own families. (According to some accounts, she is said to have the world land speed record for getting from Ft. Lupton to Brighton in order to get to a delivery in time).
Debbie has contributed significantly to the growth of the medical staff. Serving as Chief of Staff, as a Department Chair, has served on Peer Review for years and has always supported our on-going efforts for physician education.
Dr. Williams began working in our hospital ED in 1997 after being recruited by Cheryl Bentley. When he began, the ED had only four beds and one nurse. Over the years, his leadership has been integral to the development of our Emergency Department physician team. Through his influence he has helped bring good experienced physicians to our hospital. Fred has served as Chief of Staff for two terms, two terms as Peer Review Chair, and has been a valued mentor for the Medical Staff Office (specifically me!).
